Belden Plenum and Riser
The Lowdown on Plenum and Riser Cables
So, just what is plenum and riser cable? And why do you need it? These two questions go hand-in-hand. Let's dive in.
A plenum space is the area between floors that allow for circulation in central air systems for buildings. Because this environment present distinctly difference conditions that other places in a building, it requires special cable to meet the safety standards of such environments. To that end, plenum cable has a unique plastic jacket design specifically for this purpose.
Riser cables? Essentially, riser cables are used for running between floors in areas that are not plenum spaces. Riser cables have a special coating that allows them to self-extinguish in the event of fire.
